"Books and Magic hold the answers" Dawn Bright
My Little Pony: Voyage of Friendship
Episode 1: It Begins part 1
Dawn panted as she cantered down the 街, 街道 in Ponyville. Gotta to get to the Ponyville Hotel! She thought. She almost past it in her rush. She then bounded through the doors, up the marble stairs, and rapidly knocked on room 245’s door.
“Uncle Armor, Aunt Cadance, open up! It’s me, Dawn Bright,” Dawn shouted. She then heard hoofsteps and then her uncle, Shining Armor, opened the door and said, “Dawn Bright great of you- Dawn didn’t give him the chance to finish as she rushed in and hide behind a chair.
Aunt Cadance walked in as Dawn ordered, “If anypony asks for me I am not here. Understanding?”
Shining Armor nodded and grinned. Just then somepony else started banging on the door and shouted, “Shining Armor, Cadance, it’s me, Twilight Sparkle, let me in! And Dawn Bright I know you’re in there!”
Dawn gulped from behind her hiding place and started shaking. Shining Armor opened the door and Twilight burst in, looking angrier a than a rodeo bull.
“Dawn Bright,” Twilight implored as she dragged Dawn 由 her tail, “We’re going to be late because of you!” Twilight looked down at Dawn. The two 独角兽 would have been identical if Dawn’s main body color wasn’t blue and her cutie mark wasn’t the bright 星, 星级 surrounded in a 星, 星级 swirl.
“But Mom Sonic and Flashbolt are going to be there and 你 know how annoying they are!” Dawn begged her mother as she was dragged out the door. “But the Dash twin- was the last thing Shining Armor and Cadance heard as the whining unicorn was pulled out the door.
Sonic scanned the sky around the house for her brother. She saw a streak of blue and raced after it. She tagged the blue Pegasus just as a boom was heard and she went flying off.
“Ha, slowpoke,” she shouted to her brother Flashbolt, “Try to bet that!” Five 秒 later the arrogant Pegasus face planted into a cloud. “Tag,” Flashbolt 说 as he tapped his sister and raced off. Sonic narrowed her eyes and was about to chase her brother when both heard, “Sonic Rainboom, Flashbolt come here.” Strange Sonic thought. Their mom never used her full name unless it was important. Everyone just called her Sonic since Sonic Rainboom was such a mouthful.
“Coming mom,” the twins shouted. They flew right into her tumbling across their 云, 云计算 porch.
“Hey 你 two,” 彩虹 Dash 说 looking her kids. Flashbolt was her sky blue but a short cut, windblown, royal blue mane and tail of his father. He also had his father’s blue eyes but they were always hidden under his racing goggles. Sonic on the other hand had her father’s coat, white, but her mother’s mane, tail, and eyes. She never wore goggles. There cutie marks were a lightening bolt with wings and a sonic rainboom (I wonder which is which hmmm…).
“You didn’t forget about the get together, right?” 彩虹 Dash asked her twins.
The twins groaned and protested but 彩虹 Dash would hear none of it.
“Come’on guys, I heard from Pinkie Pie that Swirly Works has a new surprise!” 彩虹 told them. “All the 更多 reason NOT to go,” Sonic muttered.
Swirly clapped her hooves. It was perfect, probably the best she had ever done. Swirly looked at herself in the mirror and 说 to herself, “Swirly, you’ve out done yourself, well maybe except for the princess’ birthday. I mean what could have been 更多 spectacular than… and the multicolored 小马 started going on to herself in her weird convoluted fashion.
Swirly Works looked just like her mother in build and mane/tail style but her 颜色 were different. While Pinkie Pie was pink, Swirly Works had a yellow coat, purple eyes, red and 橙子, 橙色 mane, and a green and blue tail. Just like her special talent, fireworks, she was colorful and fun. Like her mom she was 老友记 with everypony, well almost everypony, and loved having late outdoor parties which always had a 显示 of her fireworks. She also loved to attend her mom’s parties. Just then Pinkie Pie stuck her head through the door and said, “Swirly Works, OMC (Oh My Celestia), I saw that and it was super spectacular!”
“Thanks a bunch mom,” Swirly Works said.
“Hey 你 want to 显示 it at the get together today?” Pinkie Pie asked her daughter.
Swirly Works smile turned upside down as she said, “I would 爱情 to but those six other ponies are the only ponies in all of Ponyville that aren’t my friends. I mean last 月 I made a special firework for 蜂鸟 and all she did was hide under the 长椅, 沙发 covering her ears.”
“Awww come on silly willy,” Pinkie Pie 说 to Swirly Works, “it will be better this year.”
“Okie Dokie Loki,” Swirly Works 说 as she bounced after her mom.
“Here 你 go little ones,” 蜂鸟 说 to the 松鼠 family. They chattered their thanks as 蜂鸟 floated down. Her pet hummingbird, Tropic was perched on the mint green pony’s shoulder. She hummed as she walked back to her family’s forest cottage.
“Hello mom, I’m home,” 蜂鸟 quietly called.
“Hello, sweetheart,” her mom called in an equally quiet voice, “we’re leaving for the reunion.”
“The re reunion?!” 蜂鸟 说 as her breath started to quicken.
“Yes, the reunion,” Fluttershy answered as she walked in the room. She looked at her sweet daughter who was beginning to hyperventilate. She had light green 涂层, 外套 and a red and 粉, 粉色 mane and tail with a little 蜂鸟 as a cutie mark.
“Ohmompleasedon’tmakemegotoit,” begged as she began to slur her words cause she got nervous.
“It wasn’t that bad,” Fluttershy insisted.
“It’sjustthatAppleBuckwasbeingreallyloudandwell SCARY!” 蜂鸟 said. But despite her protests, 蜂鸟 walked after her out the door.
苹果 Buck aimed at the 树 and kicked. He was rewarded with the thud of apples hitting the baskets.
“Good job 苹果 Buck,” his ma said, “now here a minute.” 苹果 Buck walked over to his ma, 苹果 Jack. 苹果 Jack looked at her son. He had a 金牌 涂层, 外套 with a messy green mane and tail with his 苹果 cutie mark. “So 你 remembered the get together, right?” 苹果 jack asked her son.
“Yup, but do I really have to go?” he asked his ma, “cuz that Cre has all her fancy-shamncy paint and artsy stuff. She can be really annoying, especially when she wants 你 to pose for one of her paintins. She may have every other stallion wrapped around her hoof but not me.”
“Yes, 你 have ta go whether it be the easy way 或者 the hard way,” 苹果 Jack honestly answered her son. He snorted and followed his ma down the road from Sweet 苹果 Acres.
Creativity, 或者 Cre as her 老友记 called her, cocked her head and sighed it was missing something she just didn’t know what. Cre was in her room over her mom’s boutique. The walls were a hand painted mural. The only pieces of furniture were her 床, 床上 and desk. The 床, 床上 was for sleep and the 台, 办公桌 was for drawing. Everywhere else there was art supplies. There were many stands with blank 或者 in progress paintings. Her 台, 办公桌 was littered with drawings and the walls were covered with notes and sketches. There were paint cans, oil pastels, and pencils everywhere. Some would call it a train wreck but Cre preferred to think of it as inspirationally organized. She was almost done with her parents anniversary gift but she felt like it was missing something. Then her mom poked her head through the door.
Rarity looked at her daughter. Like her she was a unicorn and had a royal purple mane and tail. She also had a pure white coat. But Cre wore her hair differently and had sky blue highlights. Her cutie marks was an artist’s palette. She was working hard on a painting and Rarity hated disturbing her but the get together was about to began and they were hosting it. She hoped her husband would finish the decorations.
“Creativity, dear, it’s almost time for the reunion,” Rarity called to her daughter.
Cre sighed and put down her paintbrush. She grabbed a drawing pad and a pencil. She wasn’t going to let a silly party ruin her creative flow. Cre frowned and hoped that Dawn, that stick in the mud, wouldn’t ruin her creativity with her uptight organization and rules. Cre sighed as she headed down stairs.
“Oh hello Twilight darling!”
“Rainbow Dash! Great to see you!”
“Pinkie Pie, 你 brought cupcakes. They look delicious!”
“Oh Fluttershy, darling, 你 look marvelous!”
“Apple Jack, 你 brought zap 苹果 jam! Amazing, simply amazing.”
Cre heard her mother greeting her 老友记 all the way from the 最佳, 返回页首 of the stairs. She saw the adults talking and the teens standing awkwardly 下一个 to their parent. This get together happened every 月 when all the teens’ mothers had a party having fun and stuck their kids in a room hoping them to get along. Every 月 something a bit different happens.
Cre took inventory to see that they were all here. There was Dawn Bright who had her nose in 图书 all day. She never even took the time to look at Cre’s paintings 或者 drawing and always responded with its beautiful. There were the Dash twins, Sonic and Flashbolt. Flashbolt admired Cre, like almost every other single stallion, but while he left her alone, his sister was twice as annoying to her. At that moment Sonic elbowed Flashbolt in the ribs to stop staring at Cre. Then there was Swirly Works. She was just as fun loving and twice as eccentric as her mother. Her special talent was fireworks and threw huge outdoor parties to showcase them. Cre refused to go as Swirly accidentally destroyed one of Cre’s paintings but her 老友记 说 that they were spectacular. Then there was Hummingbird, sweet girl but very shy. She was very nervous and when Cre even tried to make a conversation with her it went no where. And of course there was 苹果 Buck he hated Cre for reasons unknown to her and refused to succumb to her charm. Cre finished walking down the stairs and joined the “party.”
“Spike darling won’t 你 watch the children?” Rarity called to her husband.
“’Course,” the purple and green Pegasus said. Spike had once been a dragon but because of a wish he was transformed into a Pegasus. He still has dragon qualities, like breathing fire, not being affected 由 heat, and chomps on the occasional gemstone. Cre considers herself half dragon because of this. The ladies walked into the room that Rarity and Spike had prepared for their party. Spike then turned to the teens and said, “O.K. looks like I’m going to watch 你 but your old enough, right? I’ll just be upstairs working.” And on that note he raced upstairs not wanting to be in the same room as the chaos that was about to unfold.
The teens walked into the living room and sat around the coffee 表 where they ate a small dinner. All went their separate ways, Dawn reading, Sonic and Flashbolt sleeping, Swirly Works fiddling with what ever was in the box she had carried in the house, 蜂鸟 talking to Rarity’s pet cat, Topaz, 苹果 Buck practicing his buck for the rodeo, and Cre drawing. Cre glanced over at Dawn. Her face was blank and she was concentrating on the book.
“Stop it,” Cre 说 to her.
Dawn looked up and asked, “Stop what?”
Cre answered, “Being sooooo uptight.”
“Oh yea,” Dawn 说 as her eyes narrowed.
Sonic groaned from the bookshelf. With those two fighting she couldn’t sleep. “Hey, Flashbolt, 你 wanna play a prank?” she asked her brother. Jumped up and answered, “oh yea!”
The two fly over 苹果 Buck who was too busy concentrating on his kick to notice the twins. Sonic stifled a giggle while Flashbolt sprinkled pepper on 苹果 Buck’s nose.
“AH AH ACHOO!” 苹果 Buck sneezed as he kicked. He accidentally knocked over a vase which crashed to the ground. It scared Topaz away and 蜂鸟 headed over to 苹果 Buck.
“Be 更多 careful oh if 你 don’t mind of course,” 蜂鸟 said.
“Well what is it? Do 你 want me to be 更多 careful 或者 do what I want? Choose!” 苹果 Buck 说 to Hummingbird. She let out something like a squeak and ran away. Cre started yelling at 苹果 Buck for yelling at Hummingbird. Sonic and Flashbolt started pulling pranks on everypony. Everypony started arguing and throwing Cre’s paint at each other.
Swirly Works, who had been focused on her box until that moment shouted, “HEY WHO WANTS ME TO PULL THE RIBBON!” Somepony 或者 another, in the confusion, shouted back, “SURE!”
“Okie Doki Loki,” Swirly Works shouted. Hummingbird, who realized what was about to happen, 鸽子 under the couch. And then Swirly pulled the ribbon.
BOOM! SWOSH! BOOM! BANG!
After the blinding light 显示 ended and the noise quieted. The room was covered in black soot. Everypony except Swirly Work was dazed and covered in soot.
“Hey, how 你 guys like that, super spectacular, right?” Swirly 说 as she bounced around the others. Then the parents walked in. Everyone left in a matter of minutes.
Dawn Bright had her head down. Twilight then said, “I am very”
“Disappointed in you,” 彩虹 Dash 说 to the twins, “Maybe it’s”
“For the best that Princess Celestia,” Pinkie Pie said.
“Wanted 你 to go with the others,” Fluttershy continued
“On a Voyage to the Unknown,” Rarity finished.
All of them shouted at once, “TO THE UNKNOWN,”
Swirly Works, “YEAH ROAD TRIP, 或者 更多 like 船, 小船 trip.
